Suicide Squad – 5 Reasons Why You Should Be Excited

Suicide Squad

The Squad gets ready for a fight

List compiled by Eddie on 8/07/2016

In but a few weeks time audiences around the world will be lining up to witness a group of superhero’s and misfits being dubbed “worst hero’s ever” in David Ayer’s DC comic book adaptation Suicide Squad.

After what seems like an eternity of hype and intrigue, there’s little doubt that Suicide Squad is going to make a huge amount of money at the box office and below we’ve listed a few reasons as to why you to should be getting amped up to get your cosplay costumes ready (my Harley Quinn outfit is being custom made as I write this very article) and get your ticket to what could just be the biggest superhero outing this year (sorry Batman v Superman and Captain America).

Here’s hoping Ayer’s colorful and action packed journey to the dark side of the comic book realm is worthy of all the fuss.

See you all in August!

Happy reading and happy watching!

1. These guys are not your run of the mill superhero’s

What a lovely bunch of hero’s!

Sick of the nice guys always winning and sticking it to the baddies? Suicide Squad should be the antidote you need then with this rag tag group of anti-heroes anything but model citizens. If the film sticks closely to the tone of the comics, it’s likely that Suicide Squad should majorly shake up the now stale comic book blockbuster even more so than Deadpool.

2. Will Smith

Will Smith fully kitted out as Deadshot

The last few years haven’t been great for Mr. Smith. Boycotting Oscars, roles in stinkers like Winter’s Tale and largely forgettable dramas like Concussion, it’s about time the one time Box Office king had a hit and delivered on his undeniable charisma. Not often one to take a backseat, Smith’s role as sharpshooter Deadshot should hopefully be his return to form.

3. The return of the Joker


With The Joker around things are likely to get crazy

The last time we saw the crazed clown on the big screen was in the Christopher Nolan classic The Dark Knight and as portrayed as the late great Heath Ledger it’s arguable that the portrayal of the Joker seen there was the best ever. Oscar winning actor and musician Jared Leto certainly has a lot to live up to but from all the press and from what we’ve seen in trailers and TV spots, it looks likely that his incarnation of the Joker should be a fairly colorful and entertaining one.

4. David Ayer has runs on the board

Far from a household name, Navy submariner turned director David Ayer has quietly been crafting away a very decent career behind camera (let’s just forget about Sabotage) and a trademark of his films has always been his allowance of fairly harsh and confronting material dominating his tales, and although the studio bigwigs may be looking to tone this adventure down for a wider audience, Ayer seems like the perfect man for the job as long as he delivers on the promise his shown in films like Fury and End of Watch.

5. Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie could be the scene stealer with her turn as Harley Quinn

I feel as though this one speaks for itself but its surely going to be a blast seeing Australia’s very own Margot Robbie steal the show as fan favourite Harley Quinn.

  1. I cannot wait for this. Robbie seems to have absolutely nailed what is a hugely popular character from what I’ve seen so far, could absolute steal the film from Will Smith, Joker, and Batfleck.

  2. Very excited for this, and also for Affleck’s appearance! Will be very interesting to see how his cameo ties into things. It’s also great that we don’t already know exactly what’s going to happen, like we did for a certain other DC film earlier this year…

  3. I’ve been slow coming around to the idea of this one (I’m such a Marvel girl, really!) but the last few trailers have been cranking up the excitement!

  6. You know, I was pretty neutral about this one, though I did like the cast and I really like Ayer’s work, I was ready to wait for a home release. The initial trailers were pretty bland. Then the last trailer dropped, and I thought it was starting to look pretty damn good. Then I saw that same trailer in cinema, on the big screen, and I knew there was no way that I wasn’t going to see it in cinema. It suddenly got me excited for it, and now I can’t wait!
